The condition led to a business deal.

NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. is known to have kosmemophobia — an irrational fear of jewelry.

But when he married Amy Reimann on New Year’s Eve 2016, he had to find a way around the phobia in order to wear a wedding ring. NESN reports that Earnhardt recently discussed his fear on his “Dale Jr. Download” podcast.

Earnhardt can’t stand being around metal jewelry. He’s said in the past that he finds it “creepy.”

He has a wooden ring, but he doesn’t always wear it because it could easily break. For everyday wear he sticks with something more durable. NESN reports that he and his wife “he and his wife Amy have a deal with a company that makes silicone rings.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
